These business leaders have resigned from President Trump's special council

18 Août, 2017, 04:35 | Author: Marc Bacque

Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank said late Monday he's stepping down from President Trump's manufacturing job council, joining Merck in distancing his company from the administration following Trump's widely criticized response to white nationalists' rally at Charlottesville.

"For every CEO that drops out of the Manufacturing Council, I have many to take their place", the president tweeted.

The GE CEO cited Trump's remarks on Tuesday about the deadly violence in Charlottesville as his reason for leaving the committee.

Frazier is not the first executive to resign from advisory councils serving Trump.

Another day, another defection from President Donald Trump's manufacturing council.

President Trump weighs in on Confederate monument debate
"Bannon. said in an interview that if Democrats want to fight over Confederate monuments and attack Mr. He added, "Not all of those people were white supremacists, not all of those people were neo-Nazis".


After Trump's Tuesday news conference walking back his Monday condemnation of neo-Nazis and KKK members marching in Charlottesville, the executives again found themselves backed into a corner. Trump did not publicly respond to Musk's resignation. In the morning, Trump tweeted that Frazier's response would give him "more time to lower ripoff drug prices". He wrote on Twitter Monday that "America's leaders must honour our fundamental values by clearly rejecting expressions of hatred, bigotry and group supremacy, which runs counter to the American ideal that all people are created equal".

Plank, meanwhile, said "Under Armour engages in innovation and sports, not politics". A woman was killed and 19 people injured when a auto rammed down a narrow street.

But Intel CEO Brian Krzanich was more specific when he resigned a short time later, writing that while he had urged leaders to condemn "white supremacists and their ilk", many in Washington "seem more concerned with attacking anyone who disagrees with them". "Hate and intolerance are a betrayal of what we stand for as Americans", said Pepsi chief executive Indra Nooyi, in a statement that did not address the Trump panel.

A number of companies or executives said they would remain with the council, which was formed in January to advise Trump on manufacturing growth - a focus of the president's campaign.

IBM CEO Ginni Rometty, who was a member of the forum, also added her statement to the mix on Wednesday afternoon, noting in a memo CNBC obtained that IBM has worked with every president since Woodrow Wilson and saying the company has always believed "dialogue is critical to progress" but that "this group can no longer serve the objective for which it was formed".
